learning today - leading tomorrow

To sustain growth in an increasingly competitive world, fostering talent and developing people's skills has to be a priority for all companies. Effective management and leadership development is also crucial to this process.

Upskilling our workforce is the number-one way to boost productivity.

We know that good CPD is:

Bespoke - to the business culture, vision and values
Flexible - for a variety of different contexts
Incremental - so that change can happen over time
Proven - to work in a particular context
Incentivised - with direct and indirect benefits


TFL Education’s leadership development framework provides you with a unique opportunity to design your Business CPD programme around a Qualification Framework (RQF) of internationally recognised management and leadership qualifications. Crucially the programme can be delivered in-house.

Encouraging employees to focus on translating organisational strategy into effective day to day and operational performance, we provide the freedom and flexibility to design and/or align existing in-house training to create an accredited, bespoke, sustainable, practitioner-led and evidence-based professional development programme.

Programme design, delivery and assessment

We do not specify prescriptive content or mode of delivery for our qualification programmes. Your Business is able to design your own programme content bespoke to your context, ensuring the mode of delivery meets the needs of your employees, managers, leaders and stakeholders.

All of our programmes are mapped to National Occupational Standards for Management and Leadership; we work with individual Businesses to ensure that your programme content and your delivery plan meets the assessment criteria detailed within each qualification.

We have developed approved assignment briefs for each of the qualifications in our professional development framework, ensuring that your employees, managers and leaders can meet the respective assessment criteria for each qualification.

The assignment briefs provide best practice guidelines, examine work-based problems, and encourage your employees, managers and leaders to apply management and leadership tools, models and theories to increase their impact as a leader and improve outcomes.

Once your staff complete and submit their assignment briefs we then provide you with a direct route to accreditation.
